1987 Stranded Mix Live [repost]

#DJTips #KnowledgeBase

What they don't teach you at DJ school!

Do you know the bar staffs are also stakeholders of the dancefloor?!

In the simplest form: when the bar tender gets high, the DJ gets high and when the DJ gets High, the dance floor gets high...

The Story :
One night in 1987, the bar tender have a song request, this time he requested Alan Tam's song 愛情陷阱 (Love Trap) I just turned the mood into fast song and then chopped it in and I mixed it out in a good way (nowadays they call harmonic mixing). The energy of the dance floor boosted up! He loved it and when I ordered my favorite Whisky-coke, he gave me his special treat, that was 80% Whisky and 20% coke! :)

The bar tender's name was Henry (he has kind of Malaysian accent), if I remember correctly, he was the guy who helped people (I was student in high school at that time) to record tapes in a booth inside a department store near 陳光記 (Chan Kong Kei roast duck) and 佳佳餐廳 (Kei Kei Restaurant) in the early 1980's.

Moreover, one night before business hour, Henry passed by and say hi, I was changing the stylus of the turntables, he came to the DJ booth to ask if anything he can help, I said I'm ok and I need to calibrate the tonearm a bit.
He came in the DJ booth and explained what need to be checked besides calibrating the tonearm. While he explain he turned many knobs and he took the whole tonearm out of the turntable which scared me. He continued to explain calmly while putting the tonearm back and calibrated the turntable for me.
I was scared but everything went fine that night. He knew what he was doing!

I met Henry a few times in the 2000's, he was working as waiter in Portas do Sol (restaurant in Hotel Lisboa).

Thank you!

This is the real mixtape of that night!

Artimix 5 (1987) - dj Richard Prado (Artimix)_vol.mp3

1986 年我開始學人玩 Four-track tape recorder, 學識很多新野, 又在錯誤中學習
這部 Tascam 2-4-6 好多野學 :
- 當年 Disco mixer 多用 5-band graphic EQ, 呢部有21世紀流行的 3-band knob EQ, 中音EQ knob 多了一個環, 用來選擇 中音的 frequency.
- 另外可以用 Assign Effect 按鈕, 從 Artimix 第4輯時 家中多了部 Digital Delay with 1 second sampler.

Equipment used : Tascam 246 Porta-Studio 4-tracker, Teac Digital Delay, Disco Robo, 2 belt-drive turntables, all borrowed.
Tascam 246 and Teac Digital Delay belonged to my mom (she was using these before karaoke LD existed.)
Two belt drive turntables belonged to cousin and classmate, no stop button and pitch control is turing knob of half cm in diameter.
Disco Robo and San Shui amp belonged to my elder sister.
Mixer and vinyl records belong to me.

Arthur Baker classic 80s Electro Mix 2016

"Electro-boogie" 這名字是 Miami Bass 和 Freestyle 的前身,
正正就是 這位 Authur Baker 大師 炮製了 Afrika Bambaataa and the Soul Sonic Force's "Planet Rock" 和 Freeze - "I.O.U." ...
萌生出它們, Arthur Baker大師大大功不可沒.

I did this mix a few weeks after the Hong Kong Handover Unity Party while the tunes were still banging inside my head! :)

前晚(星期四)晚飯時 唔知點解 腦內不斷 loop 著"Ultra Nate - Free" 的歌詞,
'cause you're free, To do what you want to do..."
好想聽番, 記得自己有隻 mixtape CD live mix 有這首歌, 好似用"張學友 - 我等到花兒也謝了 (Dance Mix) " 來跟...
太多 CD 很難找... 但記得那隻 mixtape CD 封面紙是粉紅色的...
最後找到, 原來跟 Free 的 是范曉萱 Mavis Fan - 你的甜蜜 (Dance Remix),
張學友 在最尾, 唔夠錄影帶錄晒佢.

P.s. In those years, I seldom write down track list during live mix, couldn't remember the remix version names for this one now.
